FIB - Scams 101 - Ye Olde Archives

First thanks for taking the time and reading this.
I cureently have a sales company which provides merchant accounts to business. In trying to get into doors i am always looking for additional products or services to add. So here goes:
I am in talks with a company which will guarantee post dated checks allowing businesses to offer 60 day same as cash. For instance if I need $1,000 worth of work am under/uninsurred, and perhaps can't use carecredit due to poor credit. I can write a check today for $400, and then a post dated checks for $300 at day 30 and 60. Once the check is approved, if it comes back returned, stop payment, closed account, etc, the practice is still guaranteed funding.
It seems to me to be a non brainer to any dental practice. I understand it is not meant to take the place of a GE capital, care credit, but it seems like a nice service to offer potential patients.
The only significant drawback to me is the check that is post dated for 30 days will not be funded for 30 days. 60 days, 60 days, etc.
I would love to get some feedback on this. Thanks in advance.
$30 Month Equipment
$10 Monthly Services Fee
Approximately 2.0% of the amount of the check which is comparable to the cost of a credit card transaction
Other vertical markets I would target will include vets, auto repair, furniture, etc.

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
